Golden Knights ink Fleury to 3-year contract extension

The Vegas Golden Knights signed goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury to a three-year contract extension Friday, the team announced. His new deal is worth an annual average value of $7 million.

Flower had one year remaining on his previous contract, which carried an AAV of $5.75 million. This extension keeps him on the Strip until the end of the 2022 campaign.

The Sorel, Quebec native joined the Knights via the expansion draft last June and went on to have one of the best seasons of his storied 14-year career. Fleury posted a record of 29-13-4 to go along with a sensational 2.24 goals-against average and .927 save percentage while backstopping Vegas to the Pacific Division crown and Stanley Cup Final run.

Fleury proved last season that despite his age and lengthy track record, he can still turn in Vezina Trophy-level performances. He's a three-time Cup champion and ranks 11th all time in victories with 404.
